Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs)

JRSOs are a very important part of our school. They are volunteers from Year 5 and Year 6 who apply for the position to help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to everyone in the school and the wider community.

What do the JRSOs do?

Here are just some of the responsibilities and activities our JRSOs get involved with:

· Lead assemblies on road safety topics

· Maintain a JRSO Road Safety Notice Board

· Run competitions in the school and organise prizes for the winners

· Get involved in organising safe and active travel activities, ie Walk to School Week

· Maintain a JRSO scrapbook to provide evidence of the topics covered

Who are the JRSO’s this year?

Amelia - Year 6

Macie - Year 6

Luke - Year 5

Madison - Year 5

 

They meet regularly with Mrs Lewis (JRSO Lead).

WHAT WE HAVE BEEN UP TO .....

Last term, we led an assembly on BE BRIGHT BE SEEN and organised a competition to design a fluorescent jacket.

We wrote to Councillor Welham to ask if he would be able to help fund road safety projects. He very kindly gave us enough money to buy a reflective pendant for every pupil, JRSO Hi-Viz jackets and prizes for our competitions!

We also carried out our first JRSO Patrol. We have green flyers for good parking, yellow flyers where parking could be slightly better and red flyers asking drivers not to park in a particular area again.

We were really pleased that most of the parking was really good. A lot of families choose to ‘Park and Stride’. We reminded parents not to park on the yellow hatchings and to always make sure that seatbelts were fastened before pulling away. We also said to make sure you have your Blue Badge on display if you park in a disabled parking spot.

This term, we are hoping to register for Sustrans Walk and Wheel 2024 so please keep an eye out for further information!

Please get in touch if you have any new ideas or suggestions for making the journey to and from school safer.
